Here are specs I wanted to post earlier in the thread and forgot.

I'm curious to how this engine is gonna stack up to the Onan. This one is 25% less cubic inches than the original b43g (43 c.i.). Of course, I'm always critical of non Onan replacements. I love my Onans!!!

Nice work so far.

Thanks for the kind words.  I am curious too.  Since I bought the 318 without the engine I can't do a direct comparison to what it was before with the Onan.  Since I am not lugging a 48" or 50" deck and I have a small lot, I took the chance on this engine.  I think I mentioned before in the thread that the decreased fuel consumption is a plus in my book.  I am also curious how it will handle the model 49 blower I have for it.

P.S. Thanks Mods for the move!

Glad to see this project wake up. Winter slowdown on other projects?

The program year at the church this fall has been brutal.  Add in 5 weddings since June and a big celebration tomorrow for the 500th anniversary of the Reformation and I have been swamped.  My free time has been divided between family and small projects at the house since the 318 is 20 miles from here.  I really should be sleeping now but I am wired...  :(
